Our aim in the geography department is to encourage the innate curiosity in all pupils that drives them to find out more about the world they live in and ask questions about why things happen. We do this through investigating a range of topics that cover issues that are relevant to pupils lives.
The best way pupils can find out more about the world they live in is to go out and explore it. This doesn’t have to mean costly excursions- there are some excellent and relevant local examples of human and physical geography. Even when you are sitting in traffic because of flooding on Water Lane, you are experiencing geography in action.
There are some excellent online resources which will help pupils to complete their homework and generally find out more about the world, these include:
